Widespread heavy rain reduces smog intensity in Lahore which has overtaken the capital of Punjab province for many days.
The rain has lessened the density of thick smog in Lahore which continued since October. According to reports, the Air Quality Index (AQI) in Lahore and its surrounding areas has decreased from 468 to 110 due to rain.
According to the Air Quality Index, Lahore was the most polluted city in the world but now due to rain the AQI has improved and Lahore has come to rank eighth from first.
The weather in Lahore has become pleasantly cold as a result of today’s rain. Low-lying regions of the twin cities and other districts in Punjab drowned in water following the rain. The rain-affected areas were left in darkness without electricity.
However, with this rain people breathed a sigh of relief after a lengthy dry spell that had caused maladies such as sore throat, dry cough, flu, and so on. After the rain, the people of Lahore are enjoying the clean atmosphere, and social media has flooded with smogless pictures.
Rain fall heavily in Gulberg, Garden Town, Iqbal Town, Multan Road, Thokar Niaz Baig, Jail Road, Mall Road, Johar Town, Canal Road, and Raiwind Road.
Before the rain, the Punjab ordered a smart lockdown in numerous areas of Lahore due to poor air quality and toxic smog in the environment. Tens of thousands of Lahore residents have become sick as a result of the deep, gray smog. It caused authorities to close schools, marketplaces, and parks.
The Meteorological Office predicts that Lahore and surrounding areas will have more rain and thunderstorms in the next 24 hours. Health experts hope that water showers will help improve air quality and heal airborne infections.
